        Never mind cats and dogs. What is the carbon footprint of football I wonder?

        Chelsea and Arsenal fans now face a long journey to the eastern edge of Europe for the Europa League final.

            The sensible thing would be to move the final to Wembley, but we all know that won't happen.

              This, indeed, is the uncomfortable truth.

                    Blimey, this thread has certainly developed quite a way from Juncker receiving an award.
                    I get the feeling that the majority here agree something has to be done, but our political systems are not up to it.

                      But there must be a balance between enjoying ourselves and killing the planet.

                      I don't follow football much but it seems two London teams are travelling to the far side of Europe to play a football match. Why? Is there not a football pitch somewhere in the UK they could use? Surely that would make more sense all round; not only saving the planet but allowing thousands more fans to enjoy the game at a reasonable cost.

                        In all probability the venue is booked ahead of the semi-finals. Same with the Champion League, Liverpool v Spurs.

                          What's the carbon footprint of the EU when it moves its meeting location from Brussels to Strasberg every few weeks.

                          Also whats the carbon footprint of the 30,000 corporate lobyists that work in Brussels.
